They both were placed on administrative leave during the investigation. One of Andrea Endicott’s co-workers went to authorities after somebody remotely reset her district-issued iPad and moved private documents. Authorities tracked the access back to the Endicotts’ home.
Dakota County Jail records show Chris Endicott was arrested at about 9:39 p.m. Tuesday by Apple Valley police. He’s expected to make his first court appearance on Thursday.MORE NEWS: How to Order Free COVID Tests Starting This Week
